There are 49 issues of Swedish newspaper "Dagens Industri", e.g.
https://archive.org/details/dagensindustri-2014-10-01
but only one comes up when I search the collection Newspapers for language = Swedish.
The rest have lang = swe, and are listed as English.

Btw, it could be nice to have these 49 issues in a little collection of their own, a sub-collection to Newspapers. But it's unclear to me what the copyright status is. Why on earth are there 49 random issues of this newspaper here? Can someone explain?

Thanks, great!

The OCR (full text) looks rather good, but all Swedish ÅÄÖ have become AAO, so perhaps OCR was not done with language=Swedish? If OCR is rerun now, will it use any new algorithms for detection and separation of newspaper columns? All that is mentioned in the metadata is "Ocr - ABBYY FineReader 11.0 (Extended OCR)", but it doesn't mention which settings were used for the OCR.

Since these items are named "Dagens Industri - March 13, 2015", sorting by title puts March 2015 before November 2014, and sorting by date (added in 2019) doesn't help. However, each item has an "Identifier - dagensindustri-2014-10-09" and sorting by that would make perfect sense, but the collection Newspapers has no option to sort by identifier.
